Export aid – Office du Ducroire
In the context of the coronavirus COVID-19, ODL has implemented the following measures to strengthen its support to Luxembourg companies:
- increase of the percentage of cover of limits and contracts issued during the state of crisis in the context of export insurance;
- collaboration with the Mutualité de Cautionnement with the establishment of insurance for guarantees issued by the Mutualité, allowing them to increase their loan capacity;
- flexibilisation of the “Bank loans insurance” which allows banks to partially reduce the risk of non-repayment of the loans they grant to Luxembourg exporters for the development of their international activities. In this context, ODL will also soften the conditions applicable to this product, in particular by increasing the percentage of insurance and by broadening the definition of eligible bank loans;
- increase of the percentage of the insurance product for bank guarantees which is aimed at banks of Luxembourg exporters to ensure the guarantee line granted by the bank and inclusion of import guarantees in the field of insurance application;
- reduction of the claim period which will allow companies to be compensated more quickly in the event of a claim;
- reduction of the reimbursement delay for invoices paid in the context of financial support.
For any questions or clarification regarding the above measures, the ODL team remains at your disposal.
